Congratulations and Happy Anniversary to one of the greatest organizations in the world! I was fortunate enough to start my career in the PA in 1964. I entered as a Building and Grounds Attendant at the Bus Terminal on 41st street and 8th Avenue.

The PA had training courses, competitive exams and a policy of promoting from within that enabled me to join the Airport Operations field. I spent the first 13 years of my very successful aviation career starting as an Airport Operations agent. Thanks to my training experiences, and a policy that let people learn, grow and advance, I became Assistant Airport Operations Manager/ Terminal Manager working at both LaGuardia and Kennedy airports.

Thanks to my PA career I secured a position in Denver as Airport Operations Manager, a position I held for 19 years before I retired. There were 105 applicants for this position and the 3 finalists were all PA airport employees.

Through the course of my career I came to know how widely respected and admired the PA was! People from the PA had a very positive influence in aviation in places like Tucson, Milwaukee, Denver, Louisville, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco/Oakland, Dallas and Saudi Arabia to name a few. Quite an accomplishment!

Thank you to one of the most admired, respected, and copied organizations the world has ever known! You certainly did right by me. I am proud to say I was an employee of Mother PONYA! Congratulations and Happy Anniversary again!
